For this final frontier, you need space

The mother of all "Star Trek" home theaters.

Electronic House

Of all the home theater creations we've seen this year, Star Trek has got to be the most popular theme , hands-down. But this latest version makes others look like a junk sale on the back lot of Universal Studios.

This obviously custom theater built for a home in Palm Beach County, Fla., measures 70 by 22 feet and includes such details as "motion-activated air-lock doors with series sound effects" and a "red alert button on the Crestron TPMC-10 controller to turn all of the LEDs bright red and flashing," according to Electronic House. Each seat is equipped with D-Box motion simulation to enhance the jump to hyperspace.

Acoustic Innovations had considered replicating the series' original ship but instead went with the newer Enterprise NCC-1701A "for a more updated look." In addition to the theater itself, there are other themed spaces such as the captain's lounge. But it should come as no surprise that our favorite feature by far is the intergalactic bar. They probably even use those skinny glasses from the original show.
